    I worked at Magna International full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity for growth (If you are politically savvy, and work hard). Magna is a great place to get experience!

    Cons

    The employee Charter is only followed when it benefits the company. HQ serves the Magna "Kool-Aid" and if it was executed at the group/division level it would be great! Unfortunately it is not and people are numbers. The extremely high turn over and back stabbing make Magna a stop along the way instead of the destination for a career

    Advice to Management

    Follow the Charter, invest in your people and listen to them.

    There is the potential to move up quickly. Its very demanding and challenging. This is a pro in my opinion.
